An episode of Groucho Marx's popular 1950's Television series, "You Bet Your Life", which aired from 1950 to 1961. A 'comedic quiz show", it proved an instant hit with both viewers and critics. As the series was produced on film, many episodes still exist. Even today, you can find this series in repeats due to it's public domain status. This episode is complete with DeSoto commercials.
It was one of many non-rigged quiz shows of the 1950's which suffered in the ratings due to the scandals surrounding "Twenty One", "The $64,000 Question" and "Dotto".

I bet you're wrong, Seto.
I enjoyed Mr. Marx's quiz show but you are wrong about "My Three Sons". It debuted on ABC in 1958. I know that because the Disney film, "The Shaggy Dog" came out that same year. I saw it when I was 6 and MacMurray and Considine were in it. They were just starting the series then and I bet you didn't know that Tim Considine is Jewish.

You dumbies claim there were no Jews on 1950's TV. Well, the host of this program was a Jew.
You people claim that the most popular show of the 1950's was "Three's Company". That show didn't even air in the 1950's.
This is a fun, catchy program that can appeal to all ages. Could you say the same about "The Daily Show"? Will ANYONE find George W. Bush jokes funny 50 years from now? I doubt it.
